Being a Post-Grad without a full-time job, going on numerous interviews is becoming the norm. To cover all my bases after doing research on the company, I googled what to wear on a job interview.
All the results gave directions like pressed business suit, closed-toe heels, neutral colors, no fingernail polish, and pulled back hair. All of these lacked any sort of personality. I thought first interviews were mainly first impression/personality type situations. How can someone get a true sense of who I am, if I am not comfortable in my attire.
I am not a fan of the business suit. It is not flattering on any one woman I have ever seen. It is also not comfortable. Then what to wear?
Nowadays, I feel business professional attire rules can be flexible.
On a recent interview I wore this.
- Blazer- Forever 21
- Sweater Dress- Target
- Scarf- Target
- Watch- Michael Kors
- Tights- JCrew
- Boots- Target
- Nail Polish- Essie
I felt and looked professional without being in an uptight suit. What do you think?
What are you wearing on your job interviews? I would love to know and happy job hunting:)
I am a recent Undergrad Graduate. One of the things I am trying to figure out after graduation is my style. How does a post grad dress?
What I do know is that the days of baggy sorority shirts and barely visible Nike shorts are drawing to an end. Now that I don’t have the excuse of not having time to dress nice because I am running to class; I have to figure out what my style now should be.
According to several Fashion Brands, the big trend for 2014 is patterns. One of my favorites, JCrew, even said “Solids are so 2013”. So in order to try and find my style after graduation, I have tried it out.
On this chilly Sunday, I have paired my SheInside Beige Long Sleeve Geometric Pattern Pullover Sweater with an Aztec inspired Pacsun Infinity Scarf, both of which I got for Christmas.
I also wore these with my $40 Stirrup Boots from Target and Ray-Ban Aviators for a day of brunch and shopping with my sister (#sistersunday). I can’t wait to incorporate these two new pieces into my every day wardrobe. One day I hope to be half as fashionable as Bravo’s Courtney Kerr.
